9 BRITISH GROUPS 3939* Pair: George Medal (GVIR); Defence Medal Harley H.Wright on first medal. First medal impressed, second medal unnamed. $5,000 Harley Harry Wright. Police Sergeant, London Metropolitan Police. GM. L.G.: 05Dec1944 p.5567 'A flying bomb demolished premises and started a large fire. There was a public shelter in the basement of the burning buildings, the entrances to which were blocked by debris. Sergeant Wright found a possible entrance in an area 10 feet below ground level. Debris blocked the area and had destroyed the steps down, but had not quite reached the doorway into the shelter. In spite of the fact that the part of the building by the area was blazing and the walls and remaining floors were in imminent danger of collapse, the Sergeant, followed by Sexton, climbed the railings and dropped into the area. Additional danger arose from a covered bridge immediately overhead which was burning strongly and was likely to lapse at any moment. The officers discovered two men and a woman in the shelter. It was not possible to get back through the area, owing to the fire, and there was no chance of escape at the rear as the exit was blocked. The shelter was slowly flooding and was filled with smoke and debris, electric cables which had become detached from the walls were on fire and an electric fuse box exploded in the Sergeant's face causing temporary blindness and severe burns. Wright made the people lie down in the water in an endeavour to assist breathing, which was made difficult by the dense smoke and overpowering heat. After some time the officers discovered that the fire around the area had abated, and it was decided to make an attempt to get out that way. With the assistance of the Sergeant, Sexton succeeded in climbing over the debris and railings and then ran to get assistance. Wright, who was by this time very weak and badly burned, was unable to assist the others but he managed to get himself out and secured assistance for the remainder of the party, who were successfully extricated by means of ropes and a ladder. Wright and Sexton showed great courage and devotion to duty. It must have been obvious to both officers before they started on this rescue that a complete collapse of the building was more or less inevitable owing to the fierceness of the fire and that when once inside the shelter their means of escape might be blocked'. part 3940* Family Group.

12 Lieut. Jarvis Rupert Francis Randell. DFC., L. G.: 03Dec1918: (Sea Patrol, Mediterranean) 'This officer has shown great gallantry on several occasions, notably on 9th August, when, having driven down a hostile machine, he attacked a train at 500 feet altitude, compelling the drivers to jump out. He then engaged a machine leaving its aerodrome, causing it to crash. Descending to twenty feet, he obtained a valuable reconnaissance of the hangars. During the whole time he was subjected to heavy anti-aircraft and machine-gun fire.' The following extracts are taken from the weekly operational reports issued by Headquarters, R.A.F. Group, Aegean: 24 June 'On two occasions enemy machines have attempted to spot on to our front line positions. On the first occasion, , a 2-seater was escorted by three D-III Albatros. Four Camels left to attack. One (Lieutenant J.R. Randell) dived on the 2-seater which was hit and last seen going down over enemy territory, but was in turn attacked by a D-III. This machine was engaged by Lieutenant W.R. Glenney, but he had to break off owing to jamming of one gun. The remaining D-IIIs now attacked Lieutenant J.R. Randell but as he was having trouble with his gun he dived, and they retired up the Angista Valley towards Drama. The other two Camels did not sight hostile aircraft. Lieutenant Randell, having expended his ammunition, returned and left again in another machine to locate the 2-seater which seemed to have crashed. What was probably the same machine was again spotted Two D-III scouts after attacking our front line reconnaissance, were engaged by Lieutenant Randell in a Camel. He had his centre section hit several times. He registered hits on both machines and they retired towards Drama, but picking up the 2-seater in the Angista Valley they all returned to the front line. Lieutenant Randell again attacked but his starboard gun jammed and the two scouts dived on him, while he dived for his own aerodrome. Meanwhile two Camels which had been sent to engage got into attacking position. The D-IIIs saw them, retired towards Drama and were lost to sight...' 20 August 1918 'Further to weekly operation report No. 125 Two Camels (Lieut. Randell and Lieut. Williams) on engaged H.A. over Drama. Lieut. Williams attacked the H.A. (DIII) and got several bursts into the machine which dived with the Camel on its tail, and was lost sight of about 100 feet from the ground. Lieut. Randell dived down to 500 feet from the ground and fired on a train going into Drama Station, he then silenced a machine gun with his guns and flew over Drama Aerodrome and fired into the Hangars during which time another DIII was observed taking off across wind; this was attacked and seen to bounce twice and fall on its nose eventually crushing its right wing. Lieut. Randell then fired into a petrol dump after which he returned to Stavros as his engine was 'missing'. Two large two-seater machines and two Scouts were observed outside the hangars. On , heavy bombs were dropped on Gereviz Air Station close to hangar in which there was a H.A.' 19 September 1918 (The following was published in the Daily Orders of the XIII Greek Division on the 25 August 1918): 'On perusal of the Flying Report of the 23rd instant submitted to me by the R.A.F. Stavros in which the British Airman Lieut. R. Randell at a great personal risk and after a fierce fighting brought down a large hostile aeroplane Albatross type, which crashed on the ground N.W. of the town Pravi. I thereby express my heartiest congratulations for his bravery and intrepidity.' Signed: J. Negropoulis, GOC., XIII Greek Division. As a result of this last incident the Greek Government conferred on Lieut. Randell the Greek Military Cross, 3rd class, which award was announced in the London Gazette on 8 February Lieutenant Jarvis Rupert Francis Randell served on a number of Aegean Islands during 1918, but his main service was with 'D' Squadron on Stavros. 'D' Squadron, Royal Naval Air Service, became 221 Squadron, Royal Air Force, on 1 April In early 1919 the squadron saw service in Russia, based at Petrovsk, Barum and Baku. Randell served throughout the Second World War on non-operational flying duties. He ended the war as a Squadron Leader, 1 July 1944, and was mentioned in despatches in the London Gazette, 8 June, Together with photocopied research for LG entries and operational reports supporting his four victories. 3954* Trio: Military Medal (GVR); British War Medal ; Victory Medal Pte.

He then returned to 140 Squadron and has now completed 38 Sorties in Mosquitos. In addition he has flown as Second Pilot on two night operations in Wellingtons of 69 Squadron. He has operated over France, Belgium, Holland and Germany, frequently encountering very bad weather in addition to enemy opposition. He has taken low level oblique photographs as well as height level verticals, one low level sortie being along the Rhine Valley. Throughout his rather extended tour his attitude towards operations has been quite outstanding, his keenness and zest for work have been a valuable example to the Squadron."

L.G.: 28Jan1941 'Sergeant Webb has been the Wireless Operator/Air Gunner to Flt.Lt.R.W.Ayres, D.F.C. and has taken part in a large number of operational flights. He has at all times shown great courage, determination and coolness of a high order and has been of the greatest assistance to his pilot. On one occasion when his guns had been damaged and after he had been slightly wounded in the face, he directed his pilot's evasive manoeuvres while being attacked by twelve Me.109s. The aircraft returned safely to base. On another occasion, although wounded by antiaircraft fire, he continued to direct the pilot's tactics for the evasion of flak and searchlights and, on the way home, made persistent efforts to repair his wireless set which has been put out of action by shell fire. He has shot down one enemy aircraft and has probably damaged others. He has set a fine example to others and his conduct is worthy of an award.'

18 DFM. L. G.: 20 Apr 'Sergeant Burcher has completed a tour of operational duty during which he has displayed the greatest enthusiasm and keenness. He has taken part in attacks against German and Italian targets and in mining sorties off France and in the Baltic. He also flew as Rear-Gunner in the daylight raids on Danzig and Le Creusot. In July 1942, when returning from Saarbrucken, the aircraft in which he was flying was attacked by five enemy fighters. This airman's excellent commentary enabled his Captain to evade two of them, and his well-directed fire drove off another two and assisted in the destruction of the fifth. Throughout his tour Sergeant Burcher has displayed cheerfulness, courage and determination worthy of the greatest praise.' Anthony Burcher was born in Sydney in 1922 and joined the Royal Australian Air Force in After training in Canada, he was advanced to Sergeant in September 1941 and proceeded to the U.K. where he completed a full tour with No. 106 Squadron. Commissioned as a Pilot Officer in November 1942, he was Rear-Gunner in Flight Lieutenant J. V. "Hoppy" Hopgood's Lancaster 111 ED925G, "M-for-Mother", on 617 Squadron's epic Dams Raid on the night of May Together with Guy Gibson's Lancaster and the third aircraft in the leading section of the first wave, Hopgood's Lancaster was caught by searchlights as it crossed the Dutch coast but evaded by violent action which took it under high tension cables. Hopgood, having apologised for the unscheduled manoeuvre, climbed rapidly and ordered Burcher to keep his eyes peeled. Moments later there were more searchlights and Burcher opened up firing tracer from his four guns. In the next instant the Lancaster was raked from nose to tail by ground fire and Burcher was hit in the groin and stomach by shell splinters. His fire extinguished the searchlights but then a shell burst alongside his turret. The aircraft swung wildly and the Flight Engineer announced that the port outer engine was on fire. Burcher tried to rotate his turret but nothing happened. Hopgood, who had been wounded in the head, regained control, feathered the port outer, and called up the crew to discover the Wireless Operator had been hit in the leg and that there was no answer from the front turret. "M-for- Mother", nevertheless, pressed on towards the Mohne Dam. Gibson made the first attack, his bomb being released at a.m. A short while later, when the water had subsided from the terrific explosion, Gibson ordered Hopgood into the attack - 'Burcher heard the shout from navigator Ken Earnshaw to "Go lower, still lower!" He then heard "Bomb gone!" from Fraser. Just at that moment there was a terrific crash and Burcher saw flames streaming past his turret on the port side' (Alan Cooper's The Men Who Breached The Dams refers). The port inner had been hit by flak and was on fire. Hopgood made a gallant attempt to gain height so that his crew might bale out. Burcher desperately hand-cranked his slowly turning turret to the fore and aft position in order to reach his parachute stowed in the fuselage. He then plugged in his intercom and shouted to Hopgood, who, having managed some 300 feet, ordered him to jump. "M-for-Mother's" bomb meantime had bounced clean over the dam wall and completely destroyed the power house below. Inside the blazing Lancaster, Burcher assisted the severely wounded Wireless Operator with his chute and pushed him out into the darkness, pulling the D-ring release as he did so. The Men Who Breached The Dams continues: 'Burcher then pulled his own release while still in the aircraft. He knew it was not in the text books, but at this height he felt it was his only chance. Bundling it under his arm he plugged in the intercom for the last time. "Rear-Gunner abandoning aircraft," he yelled. At that moment there was a terrific bang and a great rush of air. The flames had reached the main wing fuel tank. Burcher was blown out and smashed into the tailplane so violently that he broke his back. He landed with a terrific thud, which was only to be expected at such a low height. As he hit, the parachute billowed and took him back up again and it was this, a German Medical Officer said later, that saved him.' Originally posted missing along with the rest of Hopgood's crew, Burcher's survival was communicated to R.A.A.F. authorities by his W.A.A.F. fiancee to whom he sent a Prisoner of War card from Stalag Luft 111 at Sagan: 'I have quite recovered and am being well treated. Unfortunately the rest of the crew were killed and so far it seems I am the only survivor. Please write to the next-of-kin of the other members of the crew telling them that the boys had a decent burial'. It later transpired that the Bomb-Aimer had also survived. Burcher was liberated and returned to the U.K. on 14 May He was promoted Flight Lieutenant in November 1944 and transferred to the R.A.F. in 1952 for service in Korea with No. 205 Squadron. He subsequently served with the same unit in Borneo in 1955 and with No. 209 Squadron in Malaya. That same year he also attended the premiere of the film "The Dam Busters", where he was able to tell Barnes Wallis that "M-for-Mother's" bomb had been responsible for the destruction of the Mohne Dam's power house, and that a Gerrman engineer whom he had met recently told him that this had caused great problems until rebuilt in Barnes Wallis's reply was that he had tried to get the R.A.F. to bomb it from normal bombing levels since 1941 but that they had refused, and so the concept of the bouncing bomb came to be born.
